Inclusion Festival, the nation’s first festival designed to accommodate disabled people, will return to Kempton Fairgrounds in Kempton, PA July 15th–17th, with virtual components offered to increase accessibility for those unable to attend the live event.

With roots in the jam scene, the festival will present nationally touring artists including Greensboro, NC’s The Mantras as well as Yam Yam from nearby Harrisburg, PA. Inclusion Festival will also showcase a number of disabled musicians such as NYC-based award-winning blind recording artist and advocate Lachi, funky Philadelphia brass band Snacktime featuring disabled musician Ryan Gilfillian, and many more.

Founded in 2018 on the principle that music is a universal language that has the ability to connect people with vastly different backgrounds and experiences, Inclusion Festival has grown to spread inclusion as a state of mind through year-round events, experiences, consultation and training, as well as an online magazine.

Presented by the non-profit Accessible Festivals and proudly supported by Rex Foundation and Mimi Fishman Foundation, the event offers a unique experience that aims to use music and recreation to normalize disability and strengthen unity among diverse populations. This year’s offerings will include sensory-friendly live music, a wide variety of educational and recreational workshops, camping, collaborative art, relaxation areas, a community resource fair, and more, all presented in an environment designed to be accessible for all.
